The International Chamber of Commerce is proud to present its Business Integrity Compendium, which brings together for the first time all of its
guidance and rules for anti-corruption and corporate responsibility in one publication.

The aim of this ICC Business Integrity Compendium is to provide, in a practical, easy-to-use format, all of the ICC tools that are indispensable for companies big and small, around the world, that are committed to doing business in an ethical and responsible way.

ICC has long upheld the critical role of enterprises’ compliance with selfimposed rules, while recognizing the basic responsibility of international organisations and national governments in the fight against corruption and in the promotion of responsible business conduct.

ICC was the first business organisation to issue anti-corruption rules with the publication as early as 1977, with its ICC Rules to Combat Extortion and Bribery.
We have since developed a robust suite of practical rules and guidelines for responsible business conduct, developed for business by business.

We would like to thank the members of the ICC Commission on Corporate Responsibility and Anti-corruption who contributed to the development of these ICC rules and guidelines, and in particular the Commission Vice-Chair, François Vincke.

We hope that the ICC Business Integrity Compendium will be an indispensable reference tool for managers, compliance officers, lawyers and all working in
the area of anti-corruption and responsible business conduct, and we welcome feedback from users and readers so that we can continue to improve this
